beerisgoodforu (992) - Nørresundby, - NOV 14, 2012
2011 Bottle. Pours a dark brown color with a beige head. Aroma is super bourbon forward, I get vanilla, oak, leather, dark fruits of raisins and dates, tobacco, sugary notes, almost toasty notes and molasses. The flavor follows the nose, lots of bourbon, wood and vanilla, along with the molasses, dark fruits, leather funk, tobacco, toasty notes, darker sugar and tobacco. Body is on the lighter side of full with an oily mouth feel. Overall a really nice version of Adam!

No head, dark brown. Nice bourbon aroma, oak, vanilla, toffee. Taste is dried fruits, toffee, sweet. Incredibly heavy and underwhelming.

Maakun (1524) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUN 14, 2015
Bottle shared thanks to kermis. Almost black with no head. Massive bourbon, vanilla, quite creamy, very woody and rye like spices, grapes, some dark chocolate. Quite sweet with soft roasted bitterness. Medium bodied with no carbonation. Very nice but it leaves me wondering how it would be with some carbonation.

2015 bottle courtesy of the wife! So looking forward to this beer. Appearance is syrup with no head. Aroma of dried fruit and toffee. A truly unique beer, the finish is clean and I found it light leaving a hint of plum. I wish I had one to age, but well worth wait for this one. Cheers!!

bartzluke (329) - Oklahoma, USA - MAY 22, 2015
3 oz pour into a stemmed tasting glass from tap at the brewery in Portland. Black, opaque, no head. Very creamy and full bodied. Great body. Nose is sweet. Smoke, dark malt, molasses, a little booze. Taste is syrupy. A little molasses, leather, a little smoke, lots of woodiness, bourbon notes. Some booziness, but not as much as I’d expect for the size. Delicious. A great combination of creaminess, maltiness, and flavorfulness.

Bottle shared. Pours cloudy dark brown with no head. Aroma of vanilla, oak, molasses, soy, toffee, overripe dark fruits and booze. Flavour is light heavy sweet. Weird mouthfeel, it seems thick and watery at the same time. Medium bodied with completely flat carbonation.
